Hello! This is Carlton Milhouse, your botanist. Welcome to The Smoking Bong, a periodic review of Bud and all things related. The clock on my wall reads 4:20. Shall we begin?
I pursued a career in the field of botany due to my love for all things Cannabis in nature. I am a true stoner, happily and shamelessly leading a true stoners life, but I’m legit, ya dig?

Cannabis Sativa. I love the way it smells, the way it looks, the way it does that sexy, slow burn in the Sherlock bubbler pictured above (a very fine piece of glassware from the Mountain Jam Glass Company of Eugene, Oregon).

When the voices backing legalization have moved away from a discussion centered around decriminalization, to plans for commercialization and revenue stream, well… Friends, sad to tell you, when that is where the conversation begins the debate is already lost.

The music, the munchies, the cartoons, stoner films new and old; in general getting baked while having a few really good discussions. There is a clock in my home that is permanently set at 4:20. That’s because any hour of the day can be…
